Federal Encroachment On Local Police Raises Mission Creep Concern | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC

  1. Trump sending out troops play-acting as dystopian shock troops as a quid pro quo gift to Fox News, serving up the chum like Sherrif Brody in Jaws.

  2. The president and his administration, the GOP, and the AG all gone rogue while the virus roam freely..this is historic.

    1. lrn : “Mission Creep”??? Seriously? You’re ALL deluded, America! These Secret Police Units are creating chaos in Portland, for a, “pretext,” to expand! The GOP Cabinet and the Trump family KNOWS they’re going to JAIL! The Secret Police are there to PROTECT THE COUP! They’re going to STEAL your, “elections.” Unmarked, Secret Police, SS units are unconstitutional and illegal, and they only EXIST to prevent the push back in November, because they don’t want to go to JAIL! Get them OUTLAWED! Right now! Or say goodbye to your Republic! Stop acting like they don’t KNOW what the stakes are! They’re criminals who don’t want to get arrested!

    2. @Ash Roskell Americans need to start protesting by playing their own game. Away from Federal Buildings – during the day where you can film everything. Trump n fiends want martial law so they can have complete power over the US military. They cannot use the US military without congressional approval, so they have opted for a private specialized federal army that Barr has control over.

    3. If you mean by historic, it’s something we’ve seen before, you are correct. What law enforcement did to black people in the South under Jim Crow is exactly what you’re watching now but it was much worse. Trump is an old school Southern law maker, using lawlessness to subjeegate the entire country.

  3. Wow…If they don’t know Trump is moving his own personal army into cities he wants to pacify when he de-legitimizes the election and refuses to leave office then they are more clueless than I thought.

    1. When are you going to realize trump is a communist traitor and this is being done at Putins direction ON PURPOSE? Everything he’s doing is not crazy! This is planned out years ago and is being executed intentionally! Adolf Hitler had taken the same steps in Germany, trump is doing the same here and now and it’s not by accident!

    2. Mad Hatman : That’s exactly their purpose. People wondered why they seemed to WANT violence in Portland, with their heavy handed kidnappings of citizens and brutal beatings? Because they WANT the pushback, for the, “pretext,” to expand! America keeps acting like the trump’s and their whole Cabinet DON’T KNOW THEY’RE GOING TO JAIL! Using, “mission creep,” to describe the formation of a nation wide SS type, Secret Police Unit, maddens me! They are so OBVIOUSLY creating an insurgency, who’s ONLY, “mission,” will be to suppress America, when they push back, because they never had the elections they were entitled to.
      These Secret Police units are unconstitutional, illegal, and the biggest danger to America, since Bill Barr himself! His own private army, which he’ll use to intimidate America into silence, as the last of the Republic collapses, and the Constitution is finally burned. You ALL NEED TO GET THEM OUTLAWED AND OFF YOUR STREETS, AMERICA!!!

    3. Clayton Gunter : Trump may well be a fantasist and a racist, like Hitler, but his playbook is pure Stalin. Not just the quotes, but the actions too. I don’t know how well planned it all is, but it’s OBVIOUS that these secret police, KGB units have ONE purpose. To protect the regime, when the pushback comes in November. There won’t be any elections. They simply can’t allow that. They’re ALL going to jail, and America keeps acting like they don’t REALISE THAT. We’re STILL sleepwalking into Dictatorship. “Mission creep,” FFS! Wake up, America!

    4. Mad Hatman : BTW, please spread the word? This guy, “To The Point,” is a professional Trump Troll who only gets paid when you either Click his name to reply to him, or Click on his Malware, “cookies,” Click Bait Propaganda links. I found out only recently, that’s how it works. And it explains a lot about their behaviour

    5. @Ash Roskell Even if hes a professional paid Troll, its better to get the word out and stop their BS lying. Its exactly this that has allowed hate to incite America.

    1. For trump, the law is merely something he can twist and turn anyway he wants! He is a communist traitor!

    1. @Logan McLean LMAO. Why is it the ignorant always feel compelled to comment? It IS unconstitutional! I studied law and work in the court system. I know the law.

    2. JC
      A judge said the feds could stay and protect the courthouse. It’s federal property so they can be there.

    3. @Logan McLean Except there is footage of them off of federal property by blocks! That IS illegal! So is not properly identifying yourself while snatching people off the street for suspicion of future criminal activity and taking them away in unmarked vehicles. “Proactive policing” is unconstitutional!

    4. JC
      1. If you took the time, look at any of those cops shoulders, clearly you can see they’re identified. Bold letters that spell”police” on the front
      2. The people arrested had warrants out for their arrests, quit defending criminals
      3. Police use unmarked vehicles all the time, I’ve seen them myself.

    5. @Logan McLean Anyone can get the same “POLICE” patches. Many of the people picked up had no warrants and were given no explanation of why they were being detained. Lastly, police may used unmarked vehicles, but these were RENTALS, not government vehicles. Proactive policing is something that happens in authoritarian countries, NOT in democracies!

    1. Its insane to open the schools too soon like Trump did with businesses opening too soon.. Sending children into the jaws of death while we’re in an out of control pandemic is outrageous. Trump cares nothing about families. Keep your kids home!

  4. I said it before & I’ll say it again, Trump is going to hold America hostage. The “secret” police are just the beginning.

    1. I’ve been warning this would happen since Trump was selected for office, I even uploaded videos about it.

    2. Yes, alas Americans are all talk and no action. They need to be smarter than Trump, stop playing to him and start going for his weakness which is his appearance of power and control, and ratings. ALL Americans should be very worried at the moment. What people need is a leader to lead them in peaceful protest against Trump and the Reps in the Senate.

  5. In several cases, the people starting violence and damaging property turned out to be right wing extremists trying to derail the peaceful protests. Barr will not investigate that, because it is exactly what he wants.

    1. People should find out what the Boogaloo movement is. You have antifa, white supremacists and the Boogaloo people showing up to cause trouble and turn the public against BLM, as you say. I very much want to go out and Protest against Trump’s Gestapo, but that is playing right into Trump and the GOP’s hands! It allows Trump to Justify sending in his troops and it scares all of the conservatives, old people, and borderline voters, that the Liberal Anarchists are out to destroy America. If people really want to restore Democracy and improve the lives of blacks in America, and honor those that have been murdered, then STAY HOME!!! You are hurting your own cause. Take away Trump’s excuse to send in his stormtroopers. Let them show up to empty streets. Take away their ability to show violent confrontations on their FOX “news”. Instead, Vote Nov. 3rd, that’s how to protest for now. Don’t risk losing the election to Trump, by allowing him to use you to his own advantage! Please everyone stay home!

    2. MVVpro : “Mission Creep”??? Seriously? You’re ALL deluded, America! These Secret Police Units are creating chaos in Portland, for a, “pretext,” to expand! The GOP Cabinet and the Trump family KNOWS they’re going to JAIL! The Secret Police are there to PROTECT THE COUP! They’re going to STEAL your, “elections.” Unmarked, Secret Police, SS units are unconstitutional and illegal, and they only EXIST to prevent the push back in November, because they don’t want to go to JAIL! Get them OUTLAWED! Right now! Or say goodbye to your Republic! Stop acting like they don’t KNOW what the stakes are! They’re criminals who don’t want to get arrested!

    3. @Logan McLean If you look in your mirror you’ll see that you got your left and right confused.

    4. @Sandra S In other words hide your head in the sand and let someone else deal with it all while you are sitting comfortably at home? You do know that antifa is the opposite of boogaloo and white supremacists, don’t you?

  6. It’s hard to solve murder cases when their main attention is focused on tear gassing peacefully protestors!!!

    1. But, their out of control violence got them the pushback they hoped for. Now, they’re using that, “pretext,” to create the KGB style Secret Police units, nation wide. They have ONE purpose, which you’ll discover in November, if you don’t already see it? Barr KNOWS that he and the entire Trump Cabinet are going to JAIL. These secret police will protect them when they either CHEAT or BAN the elections. It’s unconstitutional to even have them, unmarked, anonymous, SS units, but all the politicians are doing is complaining about, “Mission Creep”??? They are the instrument of your suppression and Mark the END OF THE REPUBLIC! You ALL need to be doing whatever you can, to have them outlawed and OFF America’s streets. TODAY!

  7. Trump said democrate States I remove Trump for Treason and Traitor Foreign and Domestic Enimies of the United States of America remove now.

  8. Trump and Barr are attempting to push the country into a revolt so Trump can declare martial law – thus stopping the Nov elections.

  9. Trump’s gestapo thugs are not a substitute for legitimate policing. They are outside agitators creating political theater for the Trump campaign making cities less safe and less just.
    Vote true. Vote blue.

  10. THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN THE USA IS GENERAL BULLYBOY BARR. He’s the creator of the Trump Private Militia and also the strategy/tactics to disrupt the election; Barr now owns the DOAJ and commands the Trump Militia. Barr is like Trump, unprincipled, ruthless and self-serving, and a Nationalist.

    Unlike Trump, he is educated, clever, calculating, self-controlled, and not swayed by praise! Barr will do anything to keep Trump in power and thus promote his own, very ambitious plans.

  11. Remember to register to vote, they are purging the voting system.
    Re check your registered. Vote via mail ballot or early if you can. Vote
    Trump and fiends out. If you go to a protest, protest peacefully away
    from Federal buildings and monuments. Play their game smarter.

    1. He’s scared and weak. When Iran responded with multiple missile strikes after trump ordered the murder of their general, he got scared and stopped.
